The burrowing behavior of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans: a new assay for the study of neuromuscular disorders.


The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been a powerful model system for the study of key muscle genes relevant to human neuromuscular function and disorders. The behavioral robustness of C. elegans, however, has hindered its use in the study of certain neuromuscular disorders because many worm models of human disease show only subtle phenotypes while… (More)
